What is SAVIO?

SAVIO (Salesian Volunteers Ireland & Overseas) is the volunteering branch of the Salesians of Don Bosco in Ireland. SAVIO provides opportunities for adults to participate in the Salesian Mission in different centres throughout the world. Volunteers are able to ‘learn through action’ about justice and peace issues and the charism Don Bosco has passed on. SAVIO aims to assign volunteers to placements which match their abilities and the needs of young people in the host Salesian Community.
